The Moon and Stars Can Be Yours: Notes on Subway Psychics Book Launch and Reading with Magali Duzant
October 24, 2019
Join us on Thursday, October 24th at Printed Matter for a reading, book signing, and launch of The Moon and Stars Can Be Yours: Notes on Subway Psychics by Magali Duzant.
The Moon and Stars Can Be Yours is a freewheeling, far-roaming investigation into the contemporary world of spiritualism that began with Duzant’s obsessive collection of psychic fliers on the New York City subway system combined with ephemera from the NYPL Pictures Collection. In an age of increasing uncertainty, the wave of modern
mysticism is always present, eagerly waiting to fill the void created by our digital lives.
Duzant weaves together research-based writing with anecdotal stories, inviting the reader along for her ritualistic search for meaning, following the path of the Spiritualist and New Age movements.
The Moon and Stars Can Be Yours is playfully designed, the holographic foil and neon paper stocks are inspired by the fliers found on the subway. In the back of each book, a scratch off fortune card awaits the reader. The Moon and Stars Can Be Yours is the third book by Magali Duzant published by Conveyor Editions. Her previous books Light Blue Desire and I Looked & Looked, will also be
available at the launch.
